It takes an athlete to dance, yet it takes an artist to be a dancer.
PDC Provides A Rich Learning Environment
Many of our students begin their ballet training at PDC as young as 2 or 3 years old! At this age, students attend our Creative Ballet class, which offers an opportunity for the littlest dancers to experience the studio and engage in playful movement. At 4 years old, students enter our Pre-Primary program, which is the first step in Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) training method. As our students continue their way up through the grade levels the training intensifies. Many of our senior level students train after school 4-5 days a week and approximately 8 hours per week.
Enrolment for classes beings in the summer prior to our season, which runs September to June. We do accept students after the start of the season. Level placement is always at the discretion of the teacher and the decision is always made with the child’s health, safety and maturity in mind.
